Η Microsoft "ανοίγει" το PowerShell για linux και OS X

Η συμμετοχή της Microsoft στην κοινότητα του Open Source μεγαλώνει μετά την σημερινή ανακοίνωση πως διαθέτει με άδεια ανοικτού κώδικα,  το scripting και command line shell της PowerShell. 
 Είναι ήδη διαθέσιμα alpha πακέτα της έκδοσης ανοικτού κώδικα, για τις διανομές linux CentOS και Ubuntu και για το OS X της Apple. Σύντομα θα ακολουθήσουν εκδόσεις και για άλλες πλατφόρμες και διανομές.
Microsoft blog Post:
As we port PowerShell to Linux, we are making sure that we are a first class citizen on that platform. We fit in well with the architecture, idioms and existing tools. This was pretty easy as most of the original PowerShell team had deep Unix backgrounds and that shows in our design. There were a number of little changes that we made and two big things:

We created a PowerShell Editor Service. This allow users to choose from a range of editors (VS Code and Sublime with others to follow) and get a great PowerShell authoring experience with Intellisense, debugging, etc.
We will be extending the PowerShell Remoting Protocol (MS-PSRP) to use OpenSSH as a native transport. Users will have the option to use SSH or WINRM as a transport.

The initial release is an “alpha” and is community supported. In the future, we will deliver an official Microsoft released version of PowerShell based on open source to anyone running a supported version of Windows or *nix. The timing of the official Microsoft version will be based upon community input and business needs. We hope all of you will help us get it right!
